Cast Up A Highway



Hail/Heart Wounds

Posted on May 17, 2017 at 7:40 AM

At first I heard noises like someone was upstairs. That was a little freaky. Then the noises came steadily pounding harder and harder. Oh no, I thought, it’s hail! I ran to the patio doors and watched these larger than marble size white balls blowing and bouncing off the roof and the walls. It was truly ferocious, and I was so happy our cars were in the garage, and that I was under a good roof. Farther north the hail was more golf ball size, and they did a lot of damage to any cars unlucky enough to be exposed! [The storm also created havoc in many businesses; a whole mall will be closed for months for repairs.]




As I watched in fascination the bedlam of criss

crossing balls zinging around our patio, I began thinking of the motorcyclists we saw on the road yesterday. Just picture being out in that~ could be a deadly assault either walking or riding exposed on a vehicle.






Life can be like that too, you know? All is cruising along smoothly when suddenly a phone call of hail stones arrives, or an accident hits; where is there to go with the fear or the pain? To some it’s just you and the 'hail'. However, one thing I have learnedd in my Christian walk with Jesus, is that not only am I never alone, but He is there with all the tools to repair the damage to the body or the heart. Our God loves us so much, and He is always ready to heal our wounds when we go to Him in faith and love.


Proverbs 18:10 (AMP)

The name of the Lord is a strong tower;

The righteous runs to it and is safe and set on high [far above evil].





He is a strong tower offering us shelter from any situation or enemy. Yes, enemy~ example: satan deceived Adam, causing him to lose paradise. Our ancient enemy is still looking for ways to take us out, or cause our minds to doubt God; it is a ruthless foe! But we have a powerful God!!


My friends, keep His faithfulness tattooed on your heart. It will carry you through any storm. Know Him. Trust Him!

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
